“Hey Reindeer, you got Groove.”
In this story Rudy doesn’t have a red nose; rather it’s his talent for exciting new music that sets him apart from all the other Reindeer. Together with a magical Jazz Penguin he goes on an adventure that teaches him that life isn’t about following the herd.
Sing the blues with a Polar Bear, jam with the Puﬃns and beat-box with an Arctic Fox. It all happens at the North Pole Jazz Lounge. It’s gonna be coooool.
An original show featuring live jazz music for children ages 3 and up.
Live music, puppetry and a witty script all combine to create a hugely entertaining piece
The set by Katie Scott is deceptively simple – shades of pale blue and white create a chilly atmosphere suitable for an art form that aspires to be cool. A glow in the dark puppet whale brings a sense of wonder to a show that, at times, aims to be intellectually stimulating rather than moving.
There is so much to enjoy in this innovative piece of children’s theatre
